Default drift setup help

hey everyone im new to this forum but i have a question i plan on using raceland ultimos coils and sit pretty low wondering what the perfect fitment would be for drifting i was planning on using 15x8 with 195/45/15 stretch but you need spacers so im thinking on a 15x9 set up with 195/45/15 stretch let me know what you think would be a good fitment for rain sliding and some donuts on the dry pavement thanks! and the car is a 1997 na miata im also on a budget not planning on building a formula car for being only 16 and making 4k by myself and buying a miata for 3k and having money for parts i wanna go the cheap route

Is this what's known as a "hat trick?"

curbs and guardrails don't make the best drift cars.

Use can use a hammer and save yourself the effort of ramming it into wall the legit way.

so i suggest use a hammer to ruin your car instead of paying money to crash into guard rails impressing no one.

I thought crashing and running without body panels was the point of drifting.

step 1: post your hello and welcome in the "meet and greet" section
step 2: cut a hole in the box
step 3: fail and post here instead and fall victim to the real world.

This thread is worth getting banned over by breaking "be nice to noobs in the meet and greet section" rule.
EDIT: Oh **** this isn't in the meet and greet section.

OP: Go **** yourself.

Haven't seen one of these in a while. I wish amateur drifting had a higher mortality rate.

I'm still blown away at the thought of drifting a naturally aspirated Miata, with stretched tires. HTF?
